G'day all,
are there any bar mountable rubber antennas on the market (similar to the Rubber Ducky) that can be used as AM/FM car radio antennas? I broke my metal hilux antenna and want to replace it with something more durable.

Cheers,
Chris

Chris, try www.mobileone.com.au for AM/FM aerials. The 60" ones perform very well.

I put a good quality UHF base one (Dick Smith D4022) rewired to fit the radio socket, and use a standard 4.5 dB fibreglass UHF whip for FM reception around town (its full length is close to 1/4 wave length for FM broadcast band - so it picks up weak stations well).

When going bush I use a long stainless VHF whip which does a nice job of pulling in AM stations.

Both antennas have the same thread so are easy to put on and off. And the bonus is I always have a spare UHF whip handy if I break the one for my CB. And if/when I do break an antenna I only have to replace the whip, not the base and cabling.
